The story starts in 1860, when Emile Henkinbrant starts digging the foundations of his neomedieval astle. Never did he expect to stumble onto a stunning kastic phenomena, complete with fascinating rooms and 800 m of underground galleries. Well worth the detour, we promise.
Nature has sculpted splendid stalagmites and stalactites here, some with elegant shapes, others joining. This surreal landscape is completed with colourful concretions: white, black, pink, blue... Each tint reflects the minerals carried by the drops of water infiltrating the cave.
